The Evenfields Black Talent Awards exists to recognise and celebrate the outstanding performance and achievements of Black professionals across the UK, including both employees and employers.
The black tie ceremony will be held on 29th September 2022 at Birmingham's luxurious Edgbaston Stadium, one of the UK’s leading sporting venues.
We don’t apologise for focusing on Black talent.
Statistics show that 41.6% of young black adults are unemployed, compared to 12.4% of their White counterparts. Black talent is underrepresented in all sectors across the UK. The Evenfields Black Talent Awards want to highlight and celebrate those who are thriving against the odds, and those who are helping them.
At this year’s event, we expect to see at least 400 people gather to celebrate Black talent in the UK.
Our attendees will be a mix of corporate and professional individuals from all around the UK, who are enthusiastic about the attraction, progression, and celebration of Black talent. Sound like you?
WHO ARE WE?
Since 2019, the Evenfields organisation has been promoting diversity-based recruitment in order to help under-represented minority groups at the grassroots, especially black and ethnic minorities.
The Evenfields tree represents the need for strong roots from which Black talent can flourish. Want to know how you can help? Get in touch.
